Welcome to the world of the ukulele! This traditional Hawaiian instrument derived from the Portuguese Machete is a favorite by many for it's simplicity and ability to accompany the musician's voice. The ukulele is also a great solo instrument for those who don't like to sing, as it can be played melodically as well. The ukulele is a great instrument to pick up if you have no prior experience in music at all! After your first lesson, you will already be strumming away and playing your first musical notes and tunes!

I will teach you how to unlock your inner musician! In lessons we will cover everything from musical rhythms, strumming, chords, finger picking, musical phrasing, and also my method to learning any piece of music quickly and easily!

Lets learn to make music together! I look forward to guiding you on your musical journey, and I cant wait to start working with you!

About Zachary D.

Hello there! I am currently a junior in college studying nursing, but also pursuing classical and Flamenco guitar during my spare time. Please do not be discouraged by me being only 21 years old; I may be young, but I am experienced. I went to a well known performing arts high school in Florida where I helped start their classical guitar program. I was the first guitar major to graduate from the school, and the first to specialize in flamenco guitar. My job after starting the program was to assist my teacher with her new students, which was a class of over 40 high school students (all of them trying different genres of music). I still teach a couple of those students, and some of them have gone on to receive recognition and awards in music.

You do not need to be a virtuoso to play these styles of music! My goal is to have you playing from day 1! We will also focus on material you want to learn, while combining material any guitarist needs to learn. First lessons involve basic chords which will guarantee your early success on the guitar! Other topics include how to hold the guitar, strumming, finger picking basics, and how to produce specific sounds. If you are experienced with guitar, allow me to help with any musicality or performance issues you may have.

As a teacher I like to make phrasing of music one of my main focuses. I want you to really tell a story with all of the music you are making, even if it is just an exercise!

I hope to make your musical journey an enjoyable one that will last you a lifetime! I'm looking forward to working with you! Please let me know if you have any questions at all, whether its more about me, what other things go into my lessons, or if you want to know more about what the guitar can offer you!

"Music should reflect the poetry and emotions of life"
-Juan Martin (flamenco guitarist)

“The beauty of the guitar lies in its soft and persuasive voice and its beauty cannot be equaled by any other instrument.”
-Andres Segovia (classical guitarist)

Zack is an amazing instructor. He brings a vast amount of knowledge and skillsets on guitar and ukulele. He is kind and very helpful. He encourages the student to go at the pace comfortable to them and he is very committed to the goals that students set for themselves. Thank you very much Zack for being patient and teaching me the skills. I plan to come back to take his lessons again.

I was relaxed during my first lesson with Zach because Zach is a great communicator, intelligent and knowing. I feel I've learned some new techniques which I feel good about practicing and look forward to my next session.

Zach is the perfect match for me. He's intelligent, patient and imparts not too much information so I was relaxed and learned much and already see progress from my first lesson. I made a great choice.

Zach is amazing he's very knowledgeable and most importantly takes his time. He moves along as you progress. If you need him he's only a phone call away. Took one lesson with him and learned so much! Highly recommend for the beginner.

Zachary was an such an amazing teacher to my daughter Ashley. She has been wanting to learn how to play guitar for some time now, and I could not be happier with having picked Zachary as her first teacher! He was so informative and was very patient with her! She preformed her first solo in front of our family on Christmas and it was amazing. Such a nice young boy, and would defiantly recommend to anyone looking!

Zack is a great musician! His teaching methods are great. Its very interactive, hands-on, and fun. He has been at this for years so he knows how to get the info through to you. I have been his student for about 6 months now and i have learned so much. I performed for my family and it was an amazing experience! I would definetly recommend.

Zach is an amazing guy. His young age inspired my son (8 years old), and he relates more to his younger students being closer in age to them. He explains everything in great detail that's easy to understand, and has a genuine love of music. He will have you playing from your very first lesson!
